Over the long weekend, Donald Trump held his first rally since coming down with coronavirus. There was speculation by some that the President getting the virus would humble him and make him realize he should stop holding super-spreader events. Clearly that didn’t happen. His packed rally took place yesterday in Sanford, Florida and there were very few masks in sight. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was in attendance, high-fiving rally-goers and then wiping his nose in a display of idiocy.
During the speech, Trump appeared completely manic. The speculation is that he is still on dexamethasone, a steroid prescribed to him for COVID-19 that has side effects including mania and delusions of grandeur. Trump certainly spoke at a faster rate than normal and sounded almost euphoric, at one point telling the audience he wants to kiss everyone: “I'll walk in there, kiss everyone in that audience. I'll kiss the guys and the beautiful women.” Trump spread disinformation about being “immune” and having the “cure” for the virus. Hopefully after the election, when the Trump rallies end, the United States can begin to take a more adult approach to battling the pandemic.
